Watch now: Dubai's impressive New Years Eve firework display
The Palm, Burj Khalifa and more...
To celebrate the arrival of 2015 the Burj Khalifa was host to a spectacular fireworks and light display – with Arabic calligraphy beamed onto the world's tallest tower, and an impressive fireworks series sparking out of the mammoth UAE icon. A giant clock was also illuminated onto the side of the building, as thousands of people crowded around the Downtown Dubai masterpiece to count down to the New Year.
Elsewhere in the city, in the Marina area, Dubai's Burj Al Arab was also host to an incredible fireworks display, as was the Meydan Racecourse, where Pharrell Williams headlined a NYE extravaganza.
